Comox Valley Breakers bump off Black Ice 5-3 in women’s hockey


Good things came in twos for the Mike Fisher-Royal LePage Comox Valley Breakers when they defeated the Nanaimo Black Ice 5-3 in women’s hockey action Oct. 11 at Glacier Gardens.

Amber Manderson and Sarah Kendall tallied two goals each to pace the win, with Steph Murdoch netting the other goal. Kendall added three assists.

The teams were tied 2-2 after one, with the Breakers going up 3-2 in the second. Kendall scored the game-winner early in the third.

The Breakers didn’t take too long to strike, in what proved to be a feverish, back-and-forth affair. The Black Ice showed great hustle, with team captain Sarah Dion scoring twice.

Equally notable was the adept (sometimes desperate) play of the Breakers’ defence, led by Hart with her two goals.

A Breakers’ spokesperson noted the team didn’t look sharp on power plays. “The opposition sometimes out-shot us when they were shorthanded. Coach Darren Daigle will likely address this in Wednesday’s practice.”
